catchin' up

so this has just about been the craziest month ever for just so many reasons...
- Ethan finished his PhD
- we went house hunting and then bought a house in baltimore
- our parents met eachother for the first time (even though we've been dating for 4 years!) (it went well :) )
- i turned in a very important part of my thesis to my committee
- Sirus got very sick, had surgery, and now is on his way to getting better
- Ethan moved to baltimore

anyways, this was basically all in about the span of a month, so its been crazy to say the least! but i have still managed to get a few things together for the store. i'm really excited about these 3 40's day dresses that i found. they are all a very similar style, but in different sizes, so i like to think they belonged to three sisters:) One fits me perfectly, so i'm keepin' it! but the other two are going up in the shop sometime early this week, so look for pictures very soon :)

also, in other exciting news, i went to my first estate sale today! it was one down in baltimore, and it was at a house from 1905, and many of the household things were from then as well. there were piles and piles of vintage records and books, and some cool kitchen appliances. but of course, what i was most interested in were the clothes. i scored a few really neat things from the 20s and 30s, and as i was going to pay, the lady running the sale asked me if had a shop. then she said she has a bunch of other clothes and she wants me to go back tomorrow! so exciting, and i promise, pictures are to come:) :)

this picture is from our night out with Ethan and my families! it was the first time i got to wear my new skirt from Francesca that i love love love! i'm sorry you can't see the whole skirt, i didn't realize at the time that my sister didn't get all of me in the picture. but its just a good excuse to wear it again soon!


  1. Baltimore!!!!???? I'm 2 hrs from Baltimore!!!! We'll have to meet up once you get settled! :o)

  2. ah, why haven't I found my "oh, you love/collect/sell vintage? I have a whole house full of stuff to share with you" fairy godmother yet?

    that sounds awesome, I look forward to the update!

  3. I love your blog! It made me smile today to read this post about the house, baltimore, Ethan finishing his PhD and you seeming so happy! All such exciting news! Looking forward to November when we can catch up at the boys reunion - hopefully you are planning to be in town then too? Enjoy your Monday! - Abby
